the united states senate and the congress unanimously passed a measure to bolster mental health reporting requirements on background checks. some states like mine, texas, have received high marks for their compliance but many states have essentially been noncompliant and the department of justice has failed to adequately back up implementation of the law so essentially the law that we passed in the wake of the virginia tech shootings that require reporting of people that are judah kate at mentally ill in their respective states is not working the way it should. rather than just string along and ineffective program i think this is a wonderful opportunity for us to fix fix it and we shod fix fix it. i want to say just a word though about symbolism versus solutions. i am not interested in congress voting on a measure that would have no impact on the horrific violence we have seen in recent months. i am not interested in a symbolic gesture which would offer the families of the sandy hook shooting the old real solutions that they seek. to a person they told me they are not political, they don'
